Well, you learn something everyday! We always thought that was an un-named instrumental (they do it cause of the kwipment), akin to NextTimeYouSeeMe or some such...it's an actual song? With lyrics? I know nothing about it...

Hidaway is an instrumental by bluesman Eddie King. It has also been covered by Clapton and John Mayal.

At the Harding, the band was improvising while the crew was working on monitor problems.

It was performed by the band only twice. The other date being 6/21/89.

The 6-21-89 was also during equipment problems on a live broadcast show. How's that for trivial info.

It was Freddie King who wrote Hideaway. I've read that Jerry really loved this guy's playing and stole a lot of electric guitar licks from him early on.

And let us not forget that Johnny Winter Covers Hideaway quite prodigiously

Groovin' it in 79 for about 9 min! Somehow I never get tired of this Vid. Saw him open with hideaway at the Bottom line in '97 and it seemed like about 15 minutes of rocking fury and got me dancin' like a try spaz for the whole show - I think I frightened off a few people!!

Garcia later described his playing style as having "descended from barroom rock and roll, country guitar. Just 'cause that's where all my stuff comes from. It's like that blues instrumental stuff that was happening in the late Fifties and early Sixties, like Freddie King."

thank you wikipedia!

btw, heres Mr. King rocking it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbqtnNorgQA

well now i should probably listen to the show that prompted this whole post after i came in and hijacked this thing by its bootstraps

Thanks for that! Man, Freddie's got the sweet fingerstyle playin' - also like the go-go dancers!
